Chimaera downloads

This is Chris Newall's Chimaera versions C1.001A, 12 May 2003.
New Linux, Windows and DOS builds 09 August 2021.

Chimaera is an unusual adventure, recently ported by its author from its original Prime FTN to ANSI C. Though clearly inspired by the Crowther/Woods classic, it departs radically from all adventure and adventure-like games that I've ever met: it is effectively infinite in its size and has no easily definable upper score. See what the author says about it.


  1. All pre-built versions are for the Intel 32bit architecture.
  2. The game is not windows-aware and has to be run in a console window.
  3. The game uses the sqaure root library function and if built from the C source it may need to be linked with the maths library (-lm on *nix machines).
  4. If getting a Linux executable, remember to set its "executable" flag before trying to run it.
